so we're here to talk about proposed policy for infrastructure 49 districts along the port. this is a policy that the port has been working on trying to develop on the state level and now legally since 2005. and infrastructure financing district are a little bit like redevelopment. under a state law a city and county can form a subdivision to finance like new roads and parks. and the method of financing is exactly how it was in
